Since changing from LR 5 to LR6 I've big problems with importing RAW-Files (and also DNG). It takes ages. And sometimes it looks like nothing's going on at the progress bar.
MacBookPro (late 2011)
OX S El Capitan 10.11.4 (15E65)
Do you need more information?
I just made another attempt. After some minutes it's working. But before I can see the first imported photo it takes several minutes! The more photos I want to import at once the longer I have to wait. (Last import: 45 photos/ RAW)
thanks for helping!
I’m not seeing these problems personally on my MBP although I’m still on OSX10.10. I know Apple have made changes in El Capitan to the USB stack and many users have struggled to get cameras, cards and devices recognized. A work around is to connect your camera or card and launch Image Capture. That will let you get your images on to your Mac. Then try importing to LR using “Add” Let us know if that is any quicker.
If you are directly connecting the camera, try a card reader instead. You will be much happier.
